Humans have been using herbs for culinary & health benefits for as long as history has been recorded. Just like humans, wild birds have been observed gathering herbs for their nest or sampling them straight from your garden. So it should come as no surprise that herbs can also have a beneficial effect on your flock. The great news is most herbs are insanely easy to grow – no green thumb required. Most are not very finicky about their soil and can live on less water & sun than some other members of your vegetable garden. Many herbs are perennials so once you have the plant established it will continue to provide for your flock for years to come.
